TEST on Cell Organelles and Functions





The Cell Unit is an introduction to the organelles and their functions. Understanding the things that your cells can do is important, especially for the activities we will do for the rest of the year.

Here is a complete explanation about your cells, and how they compare to a more primitive cell type, the prokaryotes.
